I have Windows Vista on my laptop and have never had a problem playing and burning CDs until now. Suddenly I can't play CDs, although the Windows Media Player can see it's there, and I get an error message saying "WMP encountered an error when reading the CD drive in digital mode. Click OK to switch to analog mode. Click cancel to retry playing in digital mode".

When I click OK nothing happens for a while and then the error message repeats itself.

I have been to the Tools section and properties for the CD drive and under Playback "digital" is already selected, "analog" is in "pale" writing and won't let me select that even if I wanted to.

Any advice please?
